This is the second of two WHO Europe - AMEE sessions at this conference aimed at discussing how to build a sustainable health and care workforce for optimal, safe, patient-centred care in the complex era of changing population health needs, increased workforce mobility and the recent COVID-19 crisis. To respond properly to these challenges, health professions curricula should adapt much faster to constantly changing societal needs.  

While first session (Tuesday, 8 September, 1145-1245 UK time) will be focused on discussing the ‘what’ of the health needs of the Region and the ‘how’ of building sustainable health workforces to address these needs, this Forum session is focused on establishing cooperation between the WHO Europe and the European health professions education organisations and schools, to provide them with the optimal communication and mutual understanding of the European societies health needs, to support the development and sustainability of the European Health Workforce through education, training and continuous professional development.
